Some people really, really, really think they have something to proove. And... usually they think they are smarter then the Admins, which... they are not.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

We will always honour a request to close an account on the forums, what we won't do however is completely delete all of someone's posts because that disrupts existing threads and discussions.

I notice that you yourself have two accounts on here - is that what prompted you to make this comment ?

not two but 3 LOLOL

I think each member should have the right to decide to close his profile without asking to administrators, and keeping the topics and discussions on the forum, which when you go check you will see the topic but from a non-member (per example with his avatar saying "member removed" or something) I have seen that on other foruns, and you as administrator could have less to worry.

Its certainly an idea to keep in mind for the future, at the moment it isn't a feature supported by Invision Board so it would need to be a custom built modification. One problem with what you've suggested is that it isn't reversable, if all of a member's posts are reverted to a "guest" status upon their account's removal then it wouldn't be possible to re-open the account again in the future. I don't often get members asking to have their account closed but many of those who do come back later and ask to have their account opened again at a later date so its something to consider.

But when a member close his account he/she are aware of that, because that means they not come back anymore, so they also know that when they close their account they will have to do a new one if they werent expecting to came back.
Now if a member not come here for a certain time that member not have even to touch in his/her account,simple as that.

and the forum could save more space/money in the server.

I really don't see the advantage of that, all it would do is force returning members to register another account.

Member accounts take up a negligible amount of server resources, we could have 10 million accounts and space still wouldn't be an issue.
